Colorado Foot + Ankle Sports Medicine Reviews
I got in quickly, started treatment, will have a followup. Easy ability to contact for information. My visit initiated with the doctor. In-office x-rays, specialization. All around foot care.
Everyone was great,Very professional. I was totally impressed with the DR.
I had a very positive experience on my visit to Dr M. The office staff was efficient and friendly. I was examined, diagnosed and treated very effectively by Dr. M and was on my way in no time. I would highly recommend this office.
Dr. Muchowski is amazing! He has been working with us for approx. 2 years. His care and understanding for sports injury's is first class. I would recommend him to all athletes having any pain or injury.
I had a really bad ingrown toenail. It was the week of Thanksgiving and when I called, understandably there were no appointments available but Jazzy got me scheduled for the very next appointment available the following Tuesday. Dr. Muchowksi was fantastic! He got my toe sorted out quickly and with the utmost skill and care. He gave clear post-procedure care instructions and the toe looks and feels great. I can't speak highly enough of the professionalism and kindness of all of the staff here! Hopefully I won't have to see you all too soon (hehe) but if I have any issues, you all have a patient for life!

Foot and Ankle Trauma FAQs
What are the most common types of foot and ankle injuries?
Foot and ankle trauma is pretty common, especially among athletes and active people like hikers, runners, and skiers. Your feet and ankles are composed of dozens of bones, ligaments, tendons, and other tissues, all of which can become injured in an accident or as a result of repetitive stress. Common injuries include:
• Sprains and strains
• Neuromas or other nerve damage
• Deep bruises
Even a minor fall can cause an injury that can make it a lot harder for you to get around and enjoy your regular activities. What’s worse, some people are more prone to foot and ankle trauma than others. For instance, people with diabetes often have nerve damage or circulation problems that make injuries more likely.
And some foot conditions like bunions, arthritis, or plantar fasciitis can make injuries more likely, since these issues can change the way you walk, increasing the likelihood of:
• Balance issues
• Twisting injuries
What kinds of symptoms are associated with foot and ankle trauma?
The symptoms of any foot or ankle injury will depend on the type of injury and its severity. Many injuries cause symptoms like:
• Pain at the injury site or in the surrounding tissues
• Numbness or tingling
• Swelling and tenderness
• Discoloration and bruising
• Instability when attempting to bear weight on your foot
Some injuries like fractures or sprains can be accompanied by snapping noises, and severe fractures can cause hard lumps under the skin.
How are foot and ankle trauma diagnosed?
Since foot and ankle trauma can have so many causes, the team at Colorado Foot + Ankle Sports Medicine starts with a careful examination and evaluation of your foot and ankle, as well as a review of your symptoms, and what you were doing when the injury occurred. In most cases, they’ll also order diagnostic imaging like X-rays or CT scans, which they’ll use to help guide your treatment. Your actual treatment will be determined by the type of injury you have, your overall health, and other factors.
• Physical therapy
• Surgery to repair damaged areas
The Colorado Foot + Ankle Sports Medicine team will work closely with you every step of the way to ensure your treatment is tailored specifically for your needs, lifestyle, and goals.
